Aloha! We are starting a small permaculture farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. At 500’ feet in elevation nestled in the Ohia trees, volcanic lava rock, and wild orchids. Stay on our 3 acre agricultural lot we are hoping to transform into a food and fruit forest oasis!
We are a young couple in our late 20’s Dylan from California, and Morgan from Vermont! The both of us have fallen in love for the island life and benefits of living off of the land. We are asking for simple basic farm help in exchange for a Glamping vacation landing.
We prefer a person or couple that is self sufficient, clean, eager to help, and responsible.
Our farm Is not and will not be a business. Our land is a personal health and wellness sanctuary that will only be used for healing, it is just for our own enjoyment, and use.

Live the Island life for awhile. Wake up in the jungle on the slopes of Mauna Loa and Kilauea. Surrounded by ferns, native birds, and Ohia trees. Fully emerge yourself within the local Hawaiian culture in Hilo and Puna Hawaii and the whole Big Island.
Learn about significant Hawaiian gardening, permaculture, and farming practices on our 3 acre farm. Get to help in a easy laid back farm style.
Dylan has worked on many farms on the Big Island and is knowledgeable in local permaculture farming techniques.
We like jokes and coffee first thing in the morning then some hard work! You’ll walk away with knowledge about hawaii history, tropical gardening, and leave with many memory’s and new friends!
Help us develop our future 3 acre farm project!
Here in Hawaii the Aina(Land) is everything, as it provides everything to thrive. What we are asking is basic mild/medium farm help. Includes knowledge of using tools like pick axe, shovel, rake, pruners, and lifting 10lb rocks. Here in Hawaii we are lucky to have rocks to build gardens and rock walls!
We are currently planning a chicken coop, vegetable garden and working on a bathtub setup.
Your helping day might consist of feeding chickens, planting seeds, harvesting, planting trees, moving rocks, cutting and pruning trees&bushes, watering plants, cleaning your space, moving more rocks, painting.
UPDATE: We are looking for longer term community members who may want to spend a long term on the farm, 3-6-12months. We highly recommend buying a car or renting one, however it is not required. Having transportation is very beneficial for traveling to and from the farm and touring the island!
